ALABAMA (WDHN) — Alabama Congressman Barry Moore is co-sponsoring a bill to abolish the Department of Education and provide direct funding to state education.
According to the bill, Moore believes the individual states should distribute non-federal funds for elementary and secondary education in a way that promotes competition and choices in education.
Under this bill, introduced on Friday, January 10, the Secretary of the Treasury will make allocations for states to use fund for elementary and secondary education.
Congressman Moore took to social media, bashing the Department of Education and expressing the importance of state-run education.
The Department of Education is a nest of radical D.C. activists masquerading as educators pushing indoctrination schemes of radical anti-American ideas. For our children’s protection, it must be abolished. Across our country, we have seen taxpayer dollars used to expose children to radical gender and race idealogies without the consent of their parents. The education of our children should not belong to the federal government-it is time to return those rights to parents.Barry Moore, Social Media Post
If passed, the changes would start taking effect thirty days after the vote.
This is just the latest attempt to abolish the department, with all being shot down in the past. These attempts include Thomas Massie’s, representative for Kentucky’s 4th congressional district, attempt where he took to social media and stated “The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2022.”
